Nica's Dream by David Kastin


271 pgs.
W.W. Norton & Co., Publ.

"Nica's Dream" traces the story of a fascinating woman across her thirty-yer reign as the Jazz Baroness, but it also explores a transformative era in twentieth-century American culture. Based on interviews with musicians, family members, historians, and artists, David Kastin's probing biography unwraps the life of this enigmatic figure and evokes the vibrancy of New York during the birth of bebop, the first stirrings of the Beat Generation, and the advent of abstract expressionism.
